Have Your Voice Heard for Bethlehem's Comprehensive Plan
Have you noticed signs with this logo sprouting up around town?
Bethlehem is updating its comprehensive plan. There is a reason why it is called the comprehensive plan. It affects almost every facet of the town for the next fifteen years or more. So, it is a big deal and a wonderful opportunity.
The friends and neighbors who have agreed to serve on this update committee need our input. They cannot represent Bethlehem Historical Association without it.
Won't you take time to look at the website BethlehemForward.com, and then please do your part by completing the survey!
As members of the historical association, we need to pay attention to how the plan addresses the town's historic buildings and sites. Establishment of an historic preservation commission in the updated plan would ensure that such buildings are recognized, properly documented, and given serious consideration if threatened. The survey gives town residents an opportunity to express their support for such protection of these irreplaceable buildings.
